Video: Stanford's Kristina Vaculik on weekly award, Olympic hockey rivalry
Stanford redshirt junior Kristina Vaculik is the Pac-12 Gymnast of the Week after an all-around win and clutch performance on floor in Sunday's tri-meet against Arizona and Sacramento State. The Ontario, Canada native took first on bars and floor, scoring a 9.925 on both events. Her collegiate best on the floor exercise boosted Stanford to a comeback win after trailing Arizona heading into the final rotation, keeping her Cardinal unbeaten on the 2013-14 season.

Vaculik recently talked with Pac-12 Networks' Sarah Kezele about the pressure on her squad to remain undefeated, her experience competing at the 2012 Olympics, and whether she'll root for her native Canada or the U.S. at the upcoming Winter Games.
